100% Chill
Domenica_C, Jul 2022
The most chill activity in Cancun with the most chill guide in Cancun. Would definitely book again !
Beautiful and Amazing!!
Bonni_S, Apr 2022
Kayaking in the lagoon was absolutely AMAZING! Rodrigo (Ro) was the absolute best! We took our 12 and 13 year old kids and Ro was very accommodating and made them feel safe and comfortable the entire time! We felt so comfortable with Ro that we actually booked another fun day with him! Ro, you are an amazing person, we thank you so much for an amazing time! We will never forget and will pass along your info to friends and family who come to Cancun! We miss you friend! Until we meet again!

Best Kayaking adventure in Cancun
Jeff_S, Apr 2022
Rio was amazing. He helped get everyone on the water and kept us informed of where we were going. He pointed out birds, starfish, and a stingray. He was fun and friendly. The kayaks were in good shape, comfortable and easy to control. Best Kayaking adventure ever!!
Peaceful nature getaway on quiet Waters
Edward_O, Mar 2022
My wife and I went with Rodrigo and just one other person. So we felt like we had a very personalized experience. Rodrigo did a great job pointing out the features of the marina and the shoreline and explained the ecology of the mangrove Islands. A very fun and peaceful experience overall.

Ivan_K, Feb 2022

Best Kayak tour in Cancun
Janine_M, Feb 2022
We enjoyed the tour. It was a small group and the guide was great. We can asked many questions and he gave us many information. Beautiful nature and a really good tour.
Excellent tour of the mangroves!
Monica_M, Jan 2022
we LOVED this tour! Ro and his gorgeous wife were the best tour guides, calm, knowledgable and handled our extremely mixed bag of kayaking abilities so well (2 of us kept going in circles haha) Kayaking through the mangroves really does take you to another world totally apart from Cancun itself, and it was beautiful to see the birds skimming along the water. Stopping at the island was great for tired arms and they were more than happy to take pics of us all. We also all got complimentary drinks at the bar next to the marina when it was over! 100% recommend.
A perfect morning!
Megan_M, Jan 2022
Rodrigo was a wonderful guide. We learned about local flora and fauna, kayaked to a beautiful island. It was so lovely to see a part of Cancun other than the beaches and party scene.
Great scenic and relaxing tour
Denise_D, Dec 2021
Our guide, Ro, was excellent! He was very knowledgeable about the area’s flora and fauna, especially the birds and fish. Since there were just the two of us on the tour, it was very personalized and he answered all of our questions. Ro made sure to pause at all of the interesting parts of the tour and went at an easy and relaxing pace for two people in their sixties. We highly recommend him and the tour!
Nice Experience
Karim_L, Sept 2021

Kirsten_D, Jul 2021
Rodrigo was energetic, upbeat, and very helpful. We had a great experience. Lovely swim break in the middle
Amazing Kayaking Experience
Nathan_S, Jul 2021
Best tour guide I've had out of dozens of tours I've been on over the years. It was a great experience, and if you're looking to kayak while on vacation in Cancun, then you should definitely go with Ro.

Easy family fun
Adloi_L, Jun 2021
This was a fun family experience. I watch my 14 years old son kayak like a boss who previously had never set foot in a kayak. I would definitely do again.

Excellent tour guide!
Brittain_S, Jun 2021
Tour guide, Ro, was really great! The kayaks were fun and it was a nice, calming experience. It was just my girlfriend and I and him and we had an amazing time. He was knowledgeable, easy-going, and fun to talk to. He was helpful and suggestive about the food and the area around our hotel which helped us find some really great tacos. He has different kinds of tours he offers and we would definitely book with him again. You will not regret a tour you book with Ro.
Amazing experience
Sonja_N, Jun 2021
We had so much fun. The guide, Ro, was genuinely very helpful and knowledgeable. Would defintely recommend this tour.
Great guide, worn equipment.
Ricardo_F, Jun 2021
The tour guide was awesome , he was very friendly, personable and energetic. My only complaint is the quality of the kayaks. They are worn out and not comfortable whatsoever. We've kayaked in several parts of the world and these where the worst ones I've been in. My suggestion is to look over the equipment before comitting to the couple hour trip. That's my only complaint, if my kayak would have been in better condition, I would have bumped my review to 5 stars.
